Green Leaves

Hello!  Today I am here with another great Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge!  I so love being part of the Wee Memories DT!  This week our sponsor is the great online store, Oh my Crafts!  Our challenge is super fun, Source of Inspiration! I know I am not the only one who gets super inspired by papercrafting magazines! 

I was inspired by the current Issue of Stamp It, by Lisa Johnson's gift bag on page 82:
Not too sure if I should take a photo to show you but I have seen others do it so.....  Here is my card, I am working on my male birthday card stash.  I need one this weekend for my FIL!  I made it more spring leaves:


You can see how I was inspired by her but I made it my own.  Basically had I not shared where I was inspired you never would be able to tell!  When I was working on my design and stamp layout I played with the stamps on the paper to get how I should stamp it. I am not one of those people who just play around it never works for me, I have it in my head:


But you can also see how after I stamped all 3 of those leaves I thought to add the fourth smaller leaf!  I love all 4 of the different colors of leaves so green and so spring!  Soon!

We have such a great challenge for you this week and I can't wait to see where you find your source of inspiration!  Make sure to head on over to the Wee Memories blog to see the rest of the amazing DT's work!  You have until Friday February 25th, 11:59 pst to play!
